Four Missouri S&T students performed in the Missouri All-Collegiate Honor Choir at the 81st Missouri Music Educators Association (MMEA) Conference on Jan. 25 at Tan-Tar-A Resort in Osage Beach, Missouri.

The All-Collegiate Honor Choir, formed every four years, is a selected group of college-level choir members throughout the state. S&T’s participating students are Soprano Victoria Kramer, soprano; Danielle Baker, alto; Nicholas Bourisaw, tenor; and Zachary Palmer, bass.

“It was an interesting experience for me since I was one of only a few non-music majors participating,” says Zachary Palmer, a senior in ceramic engineering from Omaha, Nebraska. “It gave me a chance to make new friends from around the state and to sing among some very talented musicians.”

“Singing with the collegiate choir was a fantastic and once-in-a lifetime experience,” says Victoria Kramer, a chemical engineering student with minors in biology and music, from St. Louis. “Practicing and performing the music for the concert among such talented and dedicated musicians was such a blessing. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to participate in the choir.”

Eliza Rubenstein, a Missouri native and director of choral and vocal activities at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, California, led the students as guest conductor. She also serves as artistic director of the Orange County Women’s Chorus and the Long Beach Chorale and Chamber Orchestra, as well as music director at Mesa Verde United Methodist Church.
